China detains attackers of Japanese diplomat BEIJING: Beijing police have detained two men for ripping the Japanese flag from the car of Japan's ambassador to China, state press said Tuesday, of an affair that stoked ongoing diplomatic tensions. The August 27 incident, which Japan called regrettable, came amid widespread anti-Japan demonstrations in China over a disputed East China Sea island chain known as Diaoyu in China and Senkaku in Japan. Ambassador Uichiro Niwa was not hurt in the incident and there was no other damage to his diplomatic vehicle, according to the Japanese embassy. Beijing police detained a 23-year-old man surnamed Guo and a 25-year-old man surnamed Xia as the chief suspects in the incident, the city government's official news website Qianlong reported. The two men, who both admitted the wrongdoing, were "administratively detained", the report said, which means they are likely to face lesser punishments than if they were placed in criminal detention. Another man, who allegedly used his car ...

Death of Australian mining boom exaggerated: PM SYDNEY: Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard Tuesday denied claims that the mining boom was over, saying its benefits would last decades even as a key forecaster warned more projects may be shelved.   Resources Minister Martin Ferguson last month declared "the resources boom is over", prompting a flurry of speculation that falling commodity prices could see the lucrative industry wind down.   Gillard's declaration came on the day that iron ore miner giant Fortescue announced it would defer planned ...
